The report offers a number of recommendations for further progress towards an effective, strategic and accountable state.



Devolution, privatisation and oversight in Kazakhstan: Redesigning the functions of the state

This chapter focuses on the reshaping of the public sector through functional reviews, the devolution of state functions to the private sector and privatisation. As previously, these reforms will be reviewed from the standpoint of their design (principally by the MNE and the Ministry of Finance) as well as from the perspective of their implementation (by line ministries, in particular the MID).
